Dalene and Pete Heck go by a simple motto, No possessions. No plans. Just travel. As simple as that may sound on paper, there are so many things that make this creed difficult to abide by. In 2009 they sold everything they owned, packed a few essentials into their backpacks and headed for South America. Difficult to grasp for most, but they haven’t looked back since.
Part of moving forward was re branding their website: hecktictravels.com. Dalene, Pete and I go way back, the days when Pete and I used to work for the same company. We’ve kept in touch since then. Earlier this year, they asked me to help them with some imagery for their new website. They also enlisted a very talented graphic designer, Hannah.
The good news, all their hard work is paying off with quite a bit of media frenzy, especially after they have been named among the 2014 National Geographic Travelers of the Year.
Click here for the Metro Calgary article on them featuring my photo. It was the last set of the shoot and we waited patiently for the perfect moment to get the sky the right hue.
I’m glad to know Dalene and Pete. They are among the greatest people I know. I wish them many more years of No possessions. No plans. Just travel.
